Johns Manville in Defiance, Ohio is doing a production expansion to its existing plant. The expansion will require services upgrades, (2) new automated pipe machines (2) marble melters, (2) fiberizers and associated support equipment. The building expansion will be approximately 30,000 SF to accommodate the new machines.
IPS did the PEP for this project and is the EPC for this project. The project includes civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, rigging, fire protection, utilities, all foundation, steel works, piping, and new equipment installation. IPS will add (2) addition lines in new building to increase material production.
With the construction on such an aggressive schedule, IPS worked closely with JM, engineers and the other contractors to offer time saving approaches to the project. This project is planned to have zero to minimal interruption to the existing plant production schedule.
